to be a mason is an honorable thing. most masons are like most most people, average and hard working.
i was in the military and we had many masons. good people.
the founders were masons, and they were good people.
We only need to read what Christ had to say about them to know the truth.
David on the Issue first:
22 The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
23 the Lord has done this,
and it is marvelous in our eyes.
24 The Lord has done it this very day;
let us rejoice today and be glad.
Jesus on the issue:
9 “What then will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others. 10 Haven’t you read this
passage of Scripture:
“‘The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
11 the Lord has done this,
and it is marvelous in our eyes’[a]?”
12 Then the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders looked for a way to arrest him because they knew he had spoken the parable against
them. But they were afraid of the crowd; so they left him and went away.
The vineyard is Earth. The owner is God. The workers are us. Who did Jesus condemn in the first century?
Moneychangers (Bankers), False priests (Chief Priests) and the Builders (Masons).
What was the message to them? Many of the articles in my signature below outline similar verses and truths.
7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to
flee from the coming wrath? 8 Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. 9 And do not think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our
father.’ I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. 10 The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree
that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.
11 “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will
baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the
barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
When does this happen? When Christ raises the true temple on Earth.
14 Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones 15 to judge
everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners
have spoken against him.”[e] 16 These people are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and
flatter others for their own advantage.
Epistle of Barnabas 15:4
Give heed, children, what this meaneth; He ended in six days. He meaneth this, that in six thousand years the Lord shall bring all things to an
end; for the day with Him signifyeth a thousand years; and this He himself beareth me witness, saying; Behold, the day of the Lord shall be as a
thousand years. Therefore, children, in six days, that is in six thousand years, everything shall come to an end."
To see this clearly, let’s put the information into context with the entire story of the Bible:
-Adam to Abraham 2000 Years of Age 1 (FATHER)
-Abraham to Jesus 2000 Years of Age 2 (SON)
-Jesus to Today 2000 Years of Age 3 (HOLY SPIRIT)
-Day of Rest (Day of the Lord) 1000 years (SALVATION)
The "Experts in the Law" were told that they would only get the sign of Jonah to lead them to belief. The three groups--bankers, masons and
priests--will only get two thousand years (2 days) before the day of the Lord. On that day, Enoch's 70 generation prophecy is fulfilled with their
destruction. The enemies are made the footstool.
Fire is put out with water. Living water is found with Christ.
